Subject: Roddick more heat tolerant than Djokovic?

Roddick is from Austin, Texas?

Djokovic started the match hitting extremely hard. But I think
Roddick has a good chance of outlasting him. Roddick is used to
sweltering hot weather. I really like Roddick's patience. He seems
to wait longer than anybody else before hitting the ball (by good
preparation/whatever). This will be a good test of Djokovic's recent
toughening up physically, if any.

I think you're making a virtue of necessity, re [Roddick]
"seems to wait longer than anybody else before hitting
the ball" He has the longest, most convoluted FH swing
of the top players. I don't think that's a good thing, but
opinions vary. btw Roddick trained and lived in Florida,
which might serve him well atm. I think he's originally
*from* Nebraska.

Longest? I was thinking most of his strokes might resemble his
serve, very fast from the windup through the hit, so that his
opponent has less time to figure out where the ball is going.

Of course I'm not saying he's one of the greatest players, but he
does have a great serve.

Yup.

Roddick is a farm boy, he got up every day at 4:45AM to milk the cows before
working on that bomber serve in the wheat fields.

Djokovic is either faking it now or he's fucked already.
